Popping by to share some sunshine!
I don’t think it’s ever been warm enough in February, for me to sit outside in the sunshine, whilst stitching around the binding of a quilt, but yesterday …
It looks so strange to have bare branches overhead rather than the full canopy of greenery, but it was seriously warm. Shortly after one of the boys snapped this photo, I discarded my slippers and socks and even rolled up my leggins to take full advantage of the warmth – absolute bliss. It’s one of my all time favourite things to do – sit in the sunshine and stitch around a quilt – simple pleasures!!!
The quilt I’m stitching around is my 4th finish this year with a few other patchwork tops in progress. This one is for a little girl with a wonderful Welsh name – Cadi Fflur – meaning Pure Flower and she’s arrived in this world just as the flowers burst forth from their winter’s sleep.
Her quilt is from the new Makower range – Ellie – with lots of Spring flowers, little hearts and Ellie the Elephant with her trunk uplifted for good luck!
Another new little chap also received a quilt and matching cushion back in January …
This is a real Down on the Farm quilt with red barns, horses grazing in the pasture, big trucks and tractors.
Today has dawned bright and clear, without a cloud in the sky. There’ll be no outdoor stitching for me today though as I have a workshop to teach and zipped purses will be on the menu – hot off the sewing machines!
Happy days …
